Angelica Zackary and Marlon Wayans have an untraditional relationship that has inspired a new television series. Wayans is known for creating acting opportunities for himself saying, “I write and produce out of necessity, which is a gift. If I didn’t, I would be waiting in a long line with other actors.” If you’re curious about the new Wayans and Angelica Zackary movie, here’s what you need to know!
Who is Marlon Wayans married to? The White Chicks star has never been married, but people consider Marlon Wayan’s wife to be Angela Zackary. The couple have been in a relationship for over a decade, but broke up in 2013. Wayans is notoriously private about his personal life, but he spoke about his reasons for avoiding marriage, saying “If I was married, I would be divorced. I’m anti authority. I don’t like being told what to do. I like my own space. I don’t like living with people.” He talked about his brothers’ divorces and believes that the reason why his kids’ lives didn’t change after he broke up with Zackary was because they never married. “It stayed the same. I think it works. If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” He considers his relationship with Zackary a good one, seeing that they were able to raise two bright kids.
Wayans and Angelica Zackary’s kids include daughter Amai and son Shawn, and the couple decided to co-parent, even after their relationship came to an end. When asked why they remained “together” but did not live together or marry, Wayans said, “I like to keep it fresh. Because when you live together that’s when the sweat pants and cream on the face comes out and it kind of says you’re not going to get some.” If you’re looking for Angelia Zackary’s Instagram, she does not have one as she is not a celebrity like the father of her children.
As for Wayans, he is well on his way in his comedy career. He is currently the star of Netflix’s Naked, and now, his new show Marlon is on NBC. The show stars Wayans as Marlon Wayne, a sensation on social media, who is co-parenting with his ex, played by actress Essence Atkins. At 45 years of age, Wayans is now starting a show that is “eighty-seven percent” a reflection of his actual life. He is excited for fans to see a “different kind of TV dad” and a “different kind of TV family.”
So far, fans are pleasantly surprised by the new sitcom based on Wayans’ life! According to Deadline, “NBC’s Marlon Wayans comedy series, Marlon launched with a 1.3 demo rating – the highest rating among 11 new or returning scripted series on the Big 4 this summer. Compared to NBC’s timeslot demo average this summer, Marlon measured 63% better.” Not so bad for airing on a night with competition like Big Brother and America’s Got Talent!
